I said, I heard my mother,
She was praying
And the words that she said,
They still linger in my head,
She said, “A child is born in this world,
He needs protection,
God, guide and protect us,
When we’re wrong, please correct us.
And stand by me.”
In high seas or in low seas,
I’m gonna be your friend,
You know that I’m gonna be your friend.
And, baby, in high tide or low tide,
I’ll be by your side,
You know that I’ll be by your side.
